March 2017 Update:
Photos and a Review!

It’s been a busy year so far! I just returned from Bregenz, Austria, where I had the pleasure of being part of a “preview” concert, a little glimpse what’s in store for this summer’s premiere of Zesses Seglias’s To the Lighthouse (based on Virginia Woolf’s novel)…

The premiere of Klaus Dreher’s Die Graue Passion (The Gray Passion) on March 13 in Stuttgart was very well-received. Check out this review from the Eßlinger-Zeitung: Klackende Ratschen, bebendes Donnerblech (15.03.2017).

In February, I had a blast again with ICTUS in Belgium–stay tuned for information about our upcoming recording of Christopher Trapani’s Waterlines! And at the end of the month, I met up with my Forum Neue Vokalmusik friends in Durham, England–here are some photos from our latest performance of Stockhausen’s Stimmung:

What’s cookin’ for 2017…

bregenz-to-the-lighthouse2016 has been a lot of fun–from our NOISE-BRIDGE tour in the U.S.A. and Canada, to various concerts in Oldenburg, Reutlingen, Barcelona, Ghent, and (OF COURSE) the Stuttgart area–I am thankful for a busy and fulfilling year, and excited for what’s to come! In 2017, I’ll be singing Trapani in Antwerp, Stockhausen in Durham, a world premiere by Klaus Dreher in Stuttgart and Tübingen, a world premiere by Luis Cordera Puzo in Barcelona and Stuttgart, some more Aperghis, and then a world premiere opera at the Bregenzer Festspiele! The next several months are going to be a wild ride, and I can’t wait! Hope to see you out there.

Yesterday, I, along with my colleagues Simone and Matias, had a blast recording Ligeti’s Aventures and Nouvelles Aventures at the Saarländischer Rundfunk in Saarbrücken, Germany!
